Additional information: DeKalb County Government, in partnership with MARTA, launched its “Get Vaxxed DeKalb” campaign with a special announcement at a press conference on September 30, 2021.
A bus wrapped with artwork promoting the “Get Vaxxed DeKalb” messaging, along with t-shirts and baseball caps, were unveiled at the event in Decatur.
Beginning in June, DeKalb County Government has held four COVID-19 vaccination events, with a fifth one scheduled Saturday, Oct. 2. Before DeKalb began its vaccination events, approximately 44% of its eligible residents were fully vaccinated. DeKalb’s push to get residents vaccinated has increased that percentage to 51%.
